Can a physician selected to the Super Doctors list be called a "Super Doctor"?

Super Doctors is a registered trademark and we take pains to make sure the term is used properly. A physician on our list is not a "Super Doctor." Rather, proper usage would be he or she "has been selected for inclusion on the Super Doctors ® 2010 list." Used properly, the term is not descriptive, comparative or self-aggrandizing (which in some states could raise ethical concerns). It is simply a verifiable fact and, as such, is protected speech.

Super Doctors is published as a special advertising section in various city and regional magazines. The editorial staff of these magazines are not involved in the list selection or creation of those sections.
